The Game: Johns Hopkins (4-0, 3-0 Centennial) hits the road for the third time on the season as the Blue Jays head to Juniata (3-1, 2-1 CC) for their final game before the bye week.

A Look Back: Johns Hopkins improved to 4-0 overall and 3-0 in the Centennial Conference with a 45-13 victory against Muhlenberg last Saturday at Homewood Field. Juniata suffered its first loss of the season last week at Franklin & Marshall as the Diplomats scored a 46-16 victory.

Poll Position: Johns Hopkins is ranked 14th in this week's AFCA Division III Coaches Poll and 16th in this week's D3football.com Poll. The Johns Hopkins Athletic Communications Office uses the AFCA Poll to reflect the team's official ranking at the time of a game.

Countdown to 500: Johns Hopkins moved to within five wins of victory number 500 as the Blue Jays improved their all-time record to 495-476-58 (.509) with last week's victory against Muhlenberg. JHU is bidding to become the fourth Centennial Conference team to reach the 500-win mark (F&M-592, Gettysburg-549, McDaniel-515).

Series History: This week's game will be the eighth all-time meeting between Johns Hopkins and Juniata with the Blue Jays holding a 6-1 series advantge. A complete series history can be found on page 2.

At Home at Homewood: Johns Hopkins picked up its 15th straight regular season home victory with the 45-13 win against Muhlenberg last Saturday. The Blue Jays last lost a regular season home game on October 2, 2010 against Muhlenberg (30-27). That remains the only regular season home loss for the seniors on the 2013 team. Overall, the current seniors are 17-2 in the home blacks.

Road Warriors: Johns Hopkins has been nearly as strong on the road in recent years as it has been at home. Dating back to late in the 2010 season, the Blue Jays are 13-1 in their last 14 regular season road games. Taking it back farther, JHU is 25-6 (.806) on the road since the start of the 2008 season (regular season and post season games included).

Sweet September: Johns Hopkins closed the book on the month of September with a perfect 4-0 record after last week's 45-13 win against Muhlenberg. The Blue Jays have now won 15 straight and 18 of their last 19 games in the month of September. The only team to beat JHU in the month of September in its last 19 games? Randolph-Macon, which posted a 41-37 win over JHU on September 11, 2010.

More September: Johns Hopkins has not lost a home game in the month of September since September 22, 2007, when Moravian escaped Homewood with a 44-41 victory. Since then the Blue Jays have won 11 straight at home in September.

October Run Dates to 2010: Johns Hopkins has parlayed its recent success in September into an equally impressive mark in October. The Blue Jays will carry a nine-game October winning streak into this week's game at Juniata.

Move Those Chains-I: Johns Hopkins currently leads the nation with 121 first downs through four games. JHU rang up 35 in the season-opening win at Randolph-Macon, added 29 against Susquehanna, 31 at Moravian and 26 vs. Muhlenberg.

Move Those Chains-II: The 35 first downs JHU accumulated vs. Randolph-Macon are the third-highest total in school history - the top three totals have come in JHU's last 21 games dating back to 2011. The school-record of 40 first downs came last season against Moravian. The 40 first downs vs. the Greyhounds last season are one shy of the NCAA Division III record.

Bidding for 5-0: Johns Hopkins improved to 4-0 for the third straight year with last week's win vs. Muhlenberg. A win this week against Juniata would give the Blue Jays a 5-0 start for the third straight year and the sixth time under head coach Jim Margraff (2002, 2003, 2005, 2011, 2012).

Under Pressure: The Johns Hopkins defense has been dialing up the pressure in the early season as the Blue Jays have racked up 19 sacks and 36 tackles for losses through four games. JHU ranks fourth in the nation in sacks per game (4.75) and 26th in tackles for losses per game (9.0).
Junior Michael Longo counts team highs of 3.5 sacks and 4.5 TFLs to his credit, while Andy Laychur and Matt Connery have 3,0 sacks and 4.0 TFLs to their credit as well. In all, 14 different players have been in on at least one sack and 18 different players have at least one tackle for a loss.

Double Your Pleasure: Johns Hopkins has rushed and passed for more than 200 yards in all four of its games this season. This is the first time in school history JHU has rushed and passed for more than 200 yards in four consecutive game.

Abbott Reaches 1,000: Senior JD Abbott became the 23rd player in school history to reach 1,000 career rushing yards with his 86 yards last week against Muhlenberg. Abbott raised his career rushing total to 1,053 yards and now ranks 21st on JHU's career rushing list. In addition, with a career-high three rushing TDs last week, he now ranks 13th on JHU's career rushing touchdowns list with 17.

Matey Tops 4,000: Senior Robbie Matey was 25-of-30 for 265 yards with one touchdown last week against Muhlenberg and, in the process, became the sixth player in school history to amass 4,000 career passing yards as he pushed his career total to 4,023. More importantly, Matey improved to 16-2 as Johns Hopkins' starting quarterback with the win vs. the Mules.

Closing on 1,000: With JD Abbott and Robbie Matey hitting milestones last week, senior Bob D'Orazio is next up on the list to reach a personal benchmark as he will enter this week's game at Juniata needing 38 receiving yards to become the 21st player in school history to reach 1,000 career receiving yards. D'Orazio currently has 75 career receptions for 962 yards entering this week's game against the Eagles.

Many Happy Returns: The Johns Hopkins return game has gotten a boost with the arrival of freshmen Bradley Munday and Adrian Trammell. Munday is averaging 15.7 yards on his seven punt returns this season, which ranks him 13th nationally and second in the Centennial Conference, while Trammell is averaging 27.4 yards on his seven kickoff returns through four games to rank third in the Centennial and 35th in the nation.

For Starters: Freshman place-kicker Nick Campbell has enjoyed a productive beginning to his career through four games. Campbell was good on all five of his extra-point attempts and nailed a 26-yard third-quarter field goal in the win at Randolph-Macon and came back to hit all three of his extra points and a 21-yard field goal against Susquehanna. In the last two games - wins over Moravian and Muhlenberg - he has hit all six of his extra-point attempts and one field goal in each game. His 36-yard FG in the third quarter against Muhlenberg was the longest of his young career. He is currently 20-for-20 on extra points and 4-for-4 on field goals on the year.

Carbone Second in CC Punting: Senior Richie Carbone has been forced to punt just 12 times through four games, but he has again shown improvement in his average this season. After averaging 34.5 yards as a sophomore, he bumped that more than two yards per attempt last season to 36.6 yards on 34 punts. Through four games this season he is averaging 40.3 yards per punt - a mark that ranks him second in the Centennial Conference.
Carbone is also a member of the Blue Jay baseball team and helped JHU to the Centennial Conference title and a berth in the NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional last spring. He played in 26 games with 19 starts in the outfield and also had four relief appearances on the mound as well.

Wearing Them Down: Johns Hopkins holds modest scoring advantages in the first (28-17) and third quarters (34-14) through four games, but it's the second and fourth quarters where the Blue Jays have really excelled. JHU holds a stunning 59-10 scoring advantage in the second quarter and an equally impressive 38-7 buldge in the fourth.

JHU Ties Victory Record: Johns Hopkins posted a 10-2 record in 2012 and tied the school record for victories in a season. Only three times previously - 2003, 2009 & 2011 - had Hopkins won 10 games in a season. Johns Hopkins had never won more than seven games in a season prior to 2002, but the Blue Jays have posted eight or more wins nine times in the last 11 years.

Margraff Ranks Second on State Victory Chart: Johns Hopkins head coach Jim Margraff sports a career record of 161-81-3 (.663) entering this week's game at Juniata. He is just the second college football coach in Maryland state history to win 160 career games. Only Morgan State's Eddie Hurt, who won 174 games from 1929-59, has won more games as the head football coach at a college or university in the state of Maryland than Margraff.

Sustained Success: Since the start of the 2002 season the Blue Jays sport a 95-31 (.754) record. Taking it back farther the Blue Jays are 101-34 (.748) since the start of the 2001 season and 106-39 (.731) since the beginning of the 2000 season.

Seven's Heaven: Since the beginning of the 2003 season the Blue Jays are 86-21 (.804) when scoring more than seven points and 0-7 when they have been held to seven points or less.
